I said that it was too busy for me to make sure there was no cross contamination (I assume it's someone with a food allergy). The waitress goes to the table to tell the customer that, comes back and says that the lady doesn't have a food allergy; she just wants her own bread. ****ing really? What kind of self important **** brings in their own ****ing bread to a restaurant for them to toast? A little later the waitress comes back and asks for some extra salsa for the table. I told her that they could get some at the same store that they brought their bread at (I, of course, gave them their salsa).
    Lol crying because she had to wait for her food. Meanwhile there are starving children in Africa hoping to get a friggen meal. Unbelievable.
    Uh..go Giants?

    And bloody hell, it was only 15 minutes from the time we got her order until she got it. She wasn't even waiting that​ long.

    I imagine she needed to get back to work, but still, a lack of planning on her part an emergency on mine does not make. Especially when there's a Chipotle next door to my restaurant, a Burger King and 5 Guys across the street, and a McDonalds one block down. If you're in a hurry, go to one of the many fast food places (though 5 Guys wouldn't have been any faster than we were).

    I once worked at a private club. I had a lady send a salad back because it didn't have as many julienned carrots on it as the lady sitting next to her. True story.

    And I mean it literally had 3 fewer carrot shreds on it.

    Annoying *** customers. "Your order will be up shortly, I'll call it out when it's ready" "That's fine, I'll just stand here in front of the registers blocking the next twenty customers from paying..."

    I hate nitpicky people. My mom is one of them. Mom: I can't eat this. Me: What's wrong with it? Mom: Half of the egg has a lot of cheese, and the other half doesn't! Me: Um, well just mix it together? Mom: No! Me: ....

    Honestly, certain people should probably not eat out. I understand that when you pay for your food you should have a reasonable expectation of getting what you want. The key word in there is reasonable. If you feel the need to bring in your own toast (and you don't have a food allergy), then you should probably just eat at home. If you're jealous of your neighbor's salad because it has a couple extra pieces of carrot on it, then you should probably just kill yourself.
